History of The Hindu
One of India’s most prominent nationalists, known as Sardar Panikkar, founded the Hindustan Times in the late 19th century.
The Hindu was established as a weekly newspaper in Madras on September 20, 1878, by a group of six individuals known as the Triplicane Six, who were then composed of four law students and two instructors. Initial printing of the periodical was done by Srinidhi Press, but it was eventually relocated to Scottish Press, and then to The Hindu Press in Mylapore. The publication began as a weekly in 1883 and expanded to a tri-weekly in 1889 before becoming an evening daily in 1889. A copy of the newspaper was available for purchase for four annas.
On the 3rd of December, 1883, the offices were relocated to rented quarters at 100 Mount Road. Due to a lack of public subscriptions, the newspaper began publishing at its own press in the city, which was titled “The National Press.” The press was created on borrowed capital, and the newspaper began printing there. The building itself became The Hindu’s headquarters in 1892, after Maharaja of Vizianagaram, Pusapati Ananda Gajapati Raju, granted The National Press a loan to cover the cost of the structure as well as the cost of necessary expansion. Presently, the headquarters of the Hindu is in Chennai.
For much of the newspaper’s existence, the Kasturi Ranga Iyengar family has been in charge, with members of the family serving on the editorial and business operations committees, as well as on the board of directors. During his tenure as president, G. Kasturi presided from 1965 to 1991, N. Ravi presided from 1991 to 2003, and N. Ram presided from 27 June 2003 to 18 January 2011.
